How Boys Learn Best

Princeton Academy's Learning Principles for Boys

Princeton Academy's learning principles represent our views about the uniqueness of boys. These pedagogical statements are a result of our observations and direct work with boys, as well as the research, influential texts, and best practices that support our mission and philosophy. As the independent school in Princeton NJ for boys, we hold these principles as key influences on our program and community.
